Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) ‘Cookbook’


The Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) enables IEEE volunteers to share their technical expertise and demonstrate the application of engineering concepts to support the teaching and learning of science, mathematics, and technology disciplines.

IEEE offers training workshops for its members on how to facilitate in-service programs for local teachers to help them introduce hands-on engineering lessons to their students. These lesson plans are aligned with education standards and can easily be used in the classroom.

Since 2001, over 130 in-service presentations have been developed and presented by IEEE volunteers. Approximately 3,200 pre-university educators have participated in an in-service program, impacting almost 350,000 students worldwide.

In Region 8, We are highly supportive of this program and have been conducting a number of training workshops all over the region to train our volunteers to organize TISP in their sections. Full reports of our TISP activities can be found in the news section of our portal.

For the last couple of months, we have worked on a number of resources which will help provide step-by-step guidance to our volunteers to organize TISP workshops in their locality.
